It boggles my mind that so many people don't eat breakfast. Aren't you hungry when you wake up? Aren't you ravenous by noon if you skip breakfast? Are you tired and sluggish in the morning? I just don't get it. Breakfast is the very first thing on my agenda in the morning and I can't imagine life without it.
So, today I'm going to share some of our favorite breakfast foods with you. We have hot cereal 3-4 times a week, varying between oatmeal and 7-grain. Both of those can be purchased in the bulk department at WinCo. We serve them with brown sugar, strawberry jam and/or a homemade syrup that we love.
The other 3-4 mornings a week are varied. A relatively new favorite is a fancy version of oatmeal. It's a baked oatmeal that can be made the night before and just popped in the oven when you wake up. Other mornings we have waffles or pancakes. Another way we use oats is in granola. It's make a double batch in the crockpot (make sure yours is big enough for a double batch before you get started), then store it in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. We often do muffins and our favorites are morning glory, honey wheat, and bright day banana. Scrambled eggs with cinnamon toast are always a hit, but we also like using eggs in dutch babies.
The only thing we never eat is cold cereal (other than granola, of course). It's ridiculously expensive and isn't filling. I could eat an entire box of cereal and still be hungry!
Anyway, that's that. I just started a batch of granola, which is what prompted me to share our breakfast meals with you. Do you have any great breakfast ideas and/or recipes to share? If so, please leave them in the comment section!!
